"Well, Olive is mostly used for girls. But I think it is a masculine name hopefully soon it will become more of a boy name." Mar. 12, 2009:

"Olive is a girl's name whereas Oliver (Olive with an extra "r") is the boy's name - as in Oliver Cromwell or Oliver Twist, not to mention Oliver Hardy of the duo Laurel and Hardy, British actor Oliver Reed, and American film director Oliver Stone. Some boys of recent times named Oliver may well have been named for great-great-aunts or whatever named Olive." May. 17, 2008:
